I recently came across a thread on a certain music forum where somebody had mentioned the idea of listening to a new or recently released album every day for the whole year, and it struck me for a few reasons. Number one, I've been muttering to myself lately about how stale my music library is starting to get. I badly, badly need to go through and destroy a lot of the crap in it, and I also am missing a lot of things that I really like (or know that I would like, if I ever got to acquiring it). Number two, it gives me an excuse to stop being lazy and find more music, even if it's not always something I'd normally listen to. Trying to keep an open mind, as you will probably notice within the first few weeks.

So I decided to do a similar thing, but it won't be limited to "recently released" albums. The only two real rules for it are that it must be something I've never heard, and I have to write some amount about it afterwards (even if it's quick). I'd like to review all of the albums I listen to at least in some way, so months from now I will have this to look back to and remember what album it was that had that song I really loved by that band I can't remember.

Should be fun, and it may be hard to stay on the schedule, but I think I can do it. I'm already a bit late, so June 3rd will have 3 albums listened to and reviewed.

Drop a line here if you have any album recommendations that you think I might like. Still have 300+ spots to fill on the calendar.


  1. I'm going to try and keep my recommendations to a minimum:

    Salem - King Knight
    Beyond Dawn - Revelry
    Paysage d'Hiver - s/t
    Agony - Apocalyptic Dawning

    good luck dude!

  2. Already have heard that Salem album and the Paysage d'Hiver self titled. Will check the other two!
